Master Bedroom and Closet Hickory Cottage Update

Hello Dear Readers!

As I stated in my last post,

I have a little Master Bedroom and Closet

Hickory Cottage Update for you.

This week, there is not a lot happening

at the cottage EXCEPT for the floors

The floors are being sanded and stained.

We were told that it would take a little

over a week to complete as the entire first floor

is all wood. No carpet in the house,

except for my hubby’s office and exercise room

which is the bonus room above the garage.

So I hope to bring you the finished floors soon.



I have always wanted a large closet with an island in it.

So that was one of the first things on my wish list

for the new house.



Now, I shall be sharing this closet with my hubby.

How much of it will be determined! 🙂



This is just a portion of his side.

On the left, is a space for his tall chest of drawers

that actually will not fit in our new bedroom.

Or should I say the style will not fit!



The closet is at one end of the bathroom.

Rather than a regular door for the closet

I had the contractor install a French door

and I shall place some sheer curtains on them.

Thought it would add a lighter feel to the room

rather than just a solid door.



Here’s a little peek of the shower.

None of the tile has been grouted yet,

as there is too much construction dust and

NC clay everywhere!



Did you notice two shower handles on the wall?

Having two shower heads was on my hubby’s wish list.



I was only able to get a couple of pictures

of the Master Bedroom as the floor contractors

were waiting to do the room.

There is only a single ceiling tray in the new bedroom 

vs. a double tray in the previous house.  

Our ceilings are much lower in the new house.



The other side of the room where the door is.

Beyond the door is a hallway and stairs that

lead to the bonus room, a.k.a. the hubby’s

office and exercise room.

On the other side of the wall

to the right of the bedroom door

is the bathroom. The Master Bedroom and Bath

is truly a suite. I will have more photos soon.

This is the chandelier

that will be in the Master Bedroom.

It is the Claiborne by Savoy House.

After the floors are completed,

we will have 5 weeks to complete the house.

So there will be lots of details to show you!

Stay tuned!

Have most beautiful day!!!

  35. Oops. i forgot to put the // in my url and before I could add them the comment was posted. In any case, nothing new on the blog. I’ve all but given up on blogging. So much to do here I just don’t want to be on the computer as much as I used to. But I enjoy visiting other blogs and catching up, and like I mentioned, I think of you often so I’m glad I took the time to check up on you ;).

  36. Thank you for taking us along on your Hickory Cottage construction. It is amazing to watch your vision come alive. Would you mind sharing your main living area paint color? It is a beautiful neutral.

    I hope your health journey is going well.

    Thanks so much, Karen
